serious nate silver now predicts the president has a 78.4% chance of winning the election. nate silver looks at this huge mess of polls and pulls out which have historically been the most reliable and weighs them based on their representtive sample, and weighs them based upon their polling accuracy and polling method and the party dentation of that state's electorate, and the political contributions in each state, and the favorability of both candidates. early voting, that also seems to be bearing him out. across the swing states the president leads by between 2 and 26 points among early voters. okay. all of that great political euphoria aside, we can't get ahead of ourselves, because there is one thing that could bring us down from that political euphoria which is the popular vote. the national polls show now an extremely tight race. two polls have a tie. so the popular vote could still go either way. let's take a look at that. on the national map. i want to -- i want to emphasize that i'm looking at the national map because of hurricane sandy and how hurricane sand
